Please give me your islander opinion???????????????????????????????
San juan is like NY City with palm trees!
The inner island seems quaint & poor,but it`s actually socially rich!
Puerto Rican people are generally quite pleasant,friendly & love to party!
Most just speak Spanish(or act as they only speak it).
No good morning/afternoon,evening needed, a happy smile is all that is needed/required for a positive responce!
Everything moves slow(some slower than here if you can imagine that).
I call it de Isla de la Manyana (my crappy Spanish for the Island of tomorrow as nothing happens fast,or at all).
